The original fan funded project will return to their Ginetta roots in 2012 after signing up to partner popular young racer Max Coates.

After backing AMD Milltek Racing in the British Touring Car Championship in 2011, the Milton Keynes-based initiative have elected to return to the Ginetta family to back Yorkshireman Coates as he steps up to the G50 class of the Ginetta GT Supercup.

YRC founder Hannah James said: “Going back to Ginetta was an easy decision to make. It's far and away the best value championship from a fans perspective and in reality that's all that matters to us. It's exciting, the cars are fantastic and basing ourselves at the heart of the BTCC support paddock means we can offer more access to our members than ever before.”

YRC chose Coates after being impressed by his dogged determination, despite budgetary constraints, in 2011. James added: “Our activities have always been lead as far as possible by our fans interests. Max is totally different from any driver I've ever met before and having an opportunity to help support someone with his spirit, not to mention talent, is something I know our members will be thrilled about.”

Coates commented: “Partnering with YRC this year is a great opportunity. Having fans is an important part of being a racing driver and this unique supporters club gives me the opportunity to do just that.”
